    Could you pm me ? Thanks

      That would be cheating, surely?

        Personally I dislike the following in terms of my perceived risk:

        1. Enclosed spaces (probably because I'm slightly claustrophobic)
        2. Lifeboats - would you go in a elevator with no safety brakes, one wire - where that wire had been outside for 5 years being eaten alive by sea air? exactly.
        3. Mooring Decks - this depends on the size of ship, big ships are worse.
        4. Loading heavy things on deck when you are standing near the lift.
        5. Working aloft.
        6. Being expected to put out a bloody big fire / plug a hole.
        7. Working with Italians.

              Ref no 7
              What's wrong with Italians?
              I know they do a lot of shouting and waving arms and get a bit over excited at times. I used to ride a horse for an Italian family for a number of years. There was a lot of shouting but often not about anything serious lol. They do design beautiful things though, as long as you don't mind them falling apart a bit quicker than normal, I'm thinking cars..on the falling apart.
              They always seem very friendly and welcoming and thge food is fab too.

                Shouting, waving arms and getting over excited (as you have very well pointed out) does not belong on the bridge of a ship....

                  They do that there too do they ! Mmm I can see why their not your favourite then lol

                  I have seen that kind of stuff on yachts racing when its all gone a bit tits up so to speak and times when its normal.
                  Luckily I sailed with a very calm skip, who didn't do all that shouty stuff, grinds his teeth instead, keeps his crews and he wins. Says something I think.
